NCCER Rigger/Signal Person Accredited Assessment Centers are able to deliver Signal Person and the three-level Rigger Certification programs’ written assessments and practical exams that meet or exceed current ASME consensus safety standards and OSHA 29 CFR part 1926 subpart CC.

NCCER’s accreditation process is the benchmark for quality training and assessments/ certifications. By allowing organizations with qualified personnel to administer the programs, assessment centers have the advantage of scheduling tests as their equipment and personnel are available and time permits. Tests are available in computer-based and paper/pencil format with results accessible within 15 minutes of submission with no rush fees. 

NCER certified riggers and signal persons earn portable, industry-recognized credentials that are verifiable in real-time through NCCER’s Automated National Registry (ANR).
